Corns are thickenings of the skin composed of keratin that are typically found on the toes caused by repeated friction or pressure to the area.
Your physician may advise you to soak corns in warm water and file them down with an emery board or pumice stone. The base of the corn is seen on the surface of the skin while the top points inward, causing discomfort.Corns are classified as either hard or soft, depending upon their location and appearance. However, corns can appear anywhere that foot friction occurs, whether it is on top of the foot and even on the sole.In the case of soft corns, well-circumscribed thickenings may be seen on the toes, and soft papules may be noted between the toes.


However, if corns become very painful, evaluation should be sought.Patients with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or connective tissue disease, have an increased risk of complications associated with corns, and they should seek medical evaluation. Hard corns typically affect the tops of the toes and are composed of a dense core that presses on sensory nerves, causing extreme pain. Hard corns typically affect the tops of the toes or the side of the fifth toe, and appear like calloses.
Soft corns occur between the toes and are whiter and softer in appearance due to the continuous softening by sweat.
